...Elevated Fire Weather Danger Today...

A combination of southeast winds between 15-30 mph, low relative
humidity, and dry vegetation, will result in elevated fire danger
this afternoon.

Planned burning should be avoided and extra caution should be
given to any outdoor activity that may spark a fire. Any fire that
does form may have the potential to spread quickly.
